Issues in Ecology, Issue 18: Climate Change and U.S Natural Resources: Advancing the Nation's Capability to Adapt

Climate change is affecting land, water, and biodiversity in a variety of ways. While managing ecosystems and resources by relying on an expected set of climate conditions may have worked in the past, a growing number of managers understand the need to develop new ways to manage ecosystems in the face of climate change. The purpose of this Issue is to provide a broad perspective on approaches for adapting to climate change impacts on national water and land resources and biodiversity. Using examples from different management settings, we explore ways to apply management options implemented by government agencies in needs of increasing the nationís capacity to adapt, that allow natural and managed systems to adjust to the range of potential variations in future climate conditions.
